|WHO WE ARE
The TMC Sustainability Advisory Council is one of the 21 advisory councils that have been formed over the years to address important issues in the Texas Medical Center. We evolved from the Houston Medical Center Recycling Collaborative, which grew out of a recycling initiative that began several years ago at Baylor College of Medicine. Our mission is to support the sustainability policy of each member institution, and facilitate a systematic process to identify sustainability opportunities, share best practices and serve as a coordinating body in the execution of TMC-wide sustainability initiatives. As the world’s largest medical center, the TMC has a population of students, health care professionals and other workers totaling more than 100,000 – about the same size as Berkeley, Calif.; Cambridge, Mass.; or Norman, Okla. To provide the broadest array of sustainability services to the medical center, the advisory council has four active work groups - Earth Day, Best Practices, Measurement and Outreach.
